Renowned political hip-hop artist Oliver Pulfer, known by his stage name The Disciple, has made a resounding comeback with his latest release, an impactful rap song titled “Bottom of Society.” This thought-provoking track delves deep into politically charged themes, shedding light on the hardships experienced by marginalized communities across the globe.
Hailing from Bern, Switzerland, Oliver Pulfer discovered his love for rap music and hip-hop culture at a young age. Fueled by his global mindset and profound appreciation for diverse cultures, he began crafting his own rhymes in English during his teenage years. As his interest in global affairs and international history grew, he embraced the moniker “The Disciple,” symbolizing his role as a messenger spreading the messages and teachings derived from his extensive readings.
The Disciple draws inspiration from influential left-wing intellectuals like Jean Ziegler, Noam Chomsky, and pan-African leaders, molding his lyrics to address issues such as Western exploitation in developing nations, international politics, and revolutionary concepts.
In recent years, Oliver Pulfer has dedicated himself to creating a body of music in Switzerland. His lead single, “Metaphysical Disorder,” made a significant impact with its poignant commentary on the cultural genocide of African societies due to the overpowering influence of Western Civilization. The track gained substantial traction, receiving airplay on local hip-hop stations and garnering features on international and local blogs.
Now, The Disciple is preparing to release his latest single, “Bottom of Society,” featuring the captivating Xhosa vocals of Nonkoliseko Somagu. This Afro-centric track delves into the historical struggles faced by black individuals who have consistently found themselves at the lowest rung of society for the past five centuries. Through compelling examples like Gandhi, Obama, and Barhelomé De Las Casas, The Disciple highlights the persistent marginalization endured by the black community. It is important to note that the song aims not to target any specific group but rather presents historical facts from a humanistic perspective.
As The Disciple continues to champion human rights and social justice through his music, he invites listeners to engage in the dialogue surrounding these pressing issues. His previous track and the upcoming release strive to raise awareness about the enduring struggles faced by marginalized communities, fostering a greater understanding and empathy in the process.
